We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality.” ~ Alan Watts

Eckhart Tolle Quote on Consciousness Image

“Remember that your perception of the world is a reflection of your state of consciousness.” ~ Eckhart Tolle


“You came here with something to do. You are part of a universal consciousness, and there are no accidents in it.

Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here.” ~ Wayne Dyer

Consciousness quotes

Quote on negative thoughts image

“In our consciousness, there are many negative seeds and also many positive seeds. The practice is to avoid watering the negative seeds, and to identify and water the positive seeds every day.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh


“Consciousness is a quantum leap from the physical to the non-physical dimension.” ~ Sadhguru


“A group experience takes place on a lower level of consciousness than the experience of an individual. This is due to the fact that, when many people gather together to share one common emotion, the total psyche emerging from the group is below the level of the individual psyche. If it is a very large group, the collective psyche will be more like the psyche of an animal, which is the reason why the ethical attitude of large organizations is always doubtful. The psychology of a large crowd inevitably sinks to the level of mob psychology. If therefore, I have a so-called collective experience as a member of a group, it takes place on a lower level of consciousness than if I had the experience by myself alone.” ~ Carl Jung


“Imagination is the primary gift of human consciousness.” ~ Ken Robinson


“Go beyond everything. Don’t collect anything. A king does not need to go shopping in his own kingdom. Nor does he beg. Remember, you are the inner reality-pure awareness only. All that arises are appearances in consciousness. Don’t bother with all that. Rest only as the awareness. This is the secret.” ~ Mooji


“What your consciousness is intensely focused on is what will manifest in your life and in the world around you.” ~ Sadhguru


“Look at the great athletes, musicians, artists, and writers. They all tap into a source. Some call that source God or soul or spirit or consciousness. The Seven Faces of Intention: creativity, kindness, love, beauty, expansion, abundance, and receptivity. And all seven are expressions of what I imagine that source to look like. The very fact that we exist is proof to me that the nature of that source is creative at its core. And there isn’t a person reading this who does not have a gnawing sense inside that there’s something they’re here to do, something creative.” ~ Wayne Dyer


“It is He who manifests as both matter and consciousness. There is no place where God is not. In every atom, in every living being, He alone is present.” ~ Swami Rama


“Consciousness is not a bunch of thoughts or a certain level of understanding – it is a boundless dimension.” ~ Sadhguru

Inspirational consciousness quotes

quote on consciousness image

“Our difficulties launch us into new states of consciousness where we are inspired to step out of the reality of our smallest thoughts and step into the limitless freedom of our biggest dreams.” ~ Debbie Ford

“The real revolution is the evolution of consciousness.”


“Consciousness shakes off the littleness of being and finds the infinite space in which all things have a place. Be in your universality.” ~ Mooji

“You are the light of consciousness and also the witness of this light. You are pure awareness.” ~ Mooji


“There is simply no problem of life; it is absolutely purposeless play; it doesn’t have to continue; there is no reason whatever to explain it, for explanations are just another form of complexity, a new manifestation of life on top of life, gestures gesturing. If there is any problem at all it is to find out how people come to think there is a problem, whatever made them imagine that life is serious. Basically, there is the gesture. Time, space, multiplicity are all complications of it. Pain and suffering are very far-out forms of play, and there just isn’t anything at all to be afraid of. There isn’t any ego. The ego is a kind of flip, knowing that you know — like being afraid of being afraid. It’s a curlicue, an extra jazz to things, a sort of double-take or reverberation, a dithering of consciousness which is the same as anxiety.” ~ Alan Watts

Consciousness quotes

evolution of consciousness quote image

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.” ~ Eckhart Tolle


“Every act that you do unconsciously, you could also do consciously, and that makes a world of a difference.” ~ Sadhguru


“Learn to think in positive affirmations. Affirmations are any statements you make. Too often we think in negative affirmations. Negative affirmations only create more of what you say you don’t want. Saying, “I hate my job,” will get you nowhere. Declaring, “I now accept a wonderful new job,” will open the channels in your consciousness to create that.” ~ Louise Hay


“Consciousness is the birthplace of change.”


“Today, human beings have the necessary capabilities, resources, and technologies to address every issue on the planet. The only thing that’s missing is inclusive consciousness. Let’s make it happen.” ~ Sadhguru


“Consciousness is not a bunch of thoughts or a certain level of understanding. Consciousness is a dimension that is beyond our physicality. If you pay enough attention, everything in the existence has to yield to human consciousness.” ~ Sadhguru


“The consciousness in you and the consciousness in me, apparently two, really one, seek unity and that is love.” ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj


“As the fish doesn’t know water, people are ignorant of space. Consciousness is concerned only with changing and varying details; it ignores constants-especially constant backgrounds. Thus only very exceptional people are aware of what is basic to everything.” ~ Alan Watts


“Enlightenment is the natural state of consciousness, the innocent state of consciousness, that state which is uncontaminated by the movement of thought, uncontaminated by control or manipulation of mind.” ~ Adyashanti

Thought-provoking consciousness quotes

higher consciousness quote image

”When your inner mantra becomes ‘How may I serve?’ rather than ‘What am I going to get?’ and ‘Who do I need to defeat?,’ you start to see the unfolding of God in everything and everyone around you and you shift into higher consciousness.” ~ Wayne Dyer


“Society should not shape individual human consciousness. Human consciousness should shape society.” ~ Sadhguru


“Only in relationship can you know yourself, not in abstraction and certainly not in isolation. The movement of behavior is the sure guide to yourself. It’s the mirror of your consciousness; this mirror will reveal its content, the images, the attachments, the fears, the loneliness, the joy and sorrow. Poverty lies in running away from this, either in its sublimations or its identities.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


“The awakening of consciousness is the next evolutionary step for mankind.” ~ Eckhart Tolle


“Consciousness is non-physical. What is non-physical is naturally one.” ~ Sadhguru


“Real health has to happen somewhere inside you, in your subjectivity, in your consciousness, because consciousness knows no birth, no death. It is eternal. To be healthy in consciousness means: first, to be awake; second, to be harmonious; third, to be ecstatic; and fourth, to be compassionate.” ~ Osho


“The nature of your consciousness manifests in every cell of your body, every moment of your life.” ~ Sadhguru


“God is the Seed; The Universe is the Tree, Impulses, and passions are the branches, Intelligence is the flower, Pure Consciousness is the fruit, Love is the sweetness in the fruit.” ~ Sathya Sai Baba


“Consciousness is the source of who we are. Our thoughts, intentions, and actions are a consequence of that.” ~ Sadhguru

“The highest force in existence is consciousness, and you are that.” ~ Sadhguru


“Everyone and everything that shows up in the world of form in this universe originates not from a particle, as quantum physics teaches us, but from an energy field. That energy field can be called God, soul, spirit, or consciousness. It looks a certain way, sounds a certain way, and feels a certain way. I try to stay in harmony with what I believe it sounds and feels like.” ~ Wayne Dyer


“If you shift from compulsiveness to consciousness, being joyful will not be an effort.” ~ Jaggi Vasudev

“Once you put your attention, your thoughts, your energy, your consciousness on a new intention, that’s what you begin manifesting into your life. The word “intention,” I believe, is really important, because it doesn’t leave any room for doubt or maneuvering: “I intend to create this in my life out of the circumstances that I’m now experiencing.” ~ Wayne Dyer

Consciousness quotes

God Consciousness Quote Image

“There is a God part in you. The consciousness. The pure Self. Learn to listen to the voice of that Power.” ~ Amit Ray


“When we stop fighting with ourselves, we aren’t creating anymore conflict in our mind. Then our mind can for the first time relax and be still. Then for the first time our consciousness can become whole and unfragmented. Then total attention can be given to all of our thoughts and feelings. And then there will be found a gentleness and a goodness in us that can embrace all that is been given in the world. Then a deep love for everything will be the result of this deep attention. For this total attention, this soft and pure consciousness that we are, is nothing but Love itself.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti


“Consciousness is not an act, not an idea, not even a quality – it is the very basis of creation.” ~ Sadhguru


“As we grow in our consciousness… there will be more compassion and more love. And then… the barriers between people.. between religions.. and between nations will begin to fall.” ~ Ram Dass


“Pure Consciousness, which is the Heart, includes all, and nothing is outside or apart from it. That is the ultimate Truth.” ~ Ramana Maharshi


“As Joel Goldsmith said, in the presence of the God realized, the laws of the material world do not apply. That’s why people who live steadfastly at a place of God-consciousness can perform miracles. They can create. They can make virtually anything happen. From the space in-between, that last inch is the critical inch you have to take to reach that place. Every once in a while, I get to that place of God-consciousness, and miracles do happen.” ~ Wayne Dyer


“Social, national, or global realities cannot be changed without working upon human consciousness.” ~ Sadhguru

“The Divine is present in everyone, in all Beings, in everything. Like space, it is everywhere, all-pervading, all-powerful, all-knowing. The Divine is the principle of Life, the inner Light of Consciousness, and pure bliss. It is our very own self.” ~ Amma

“Absolute consciousness is manifest here in every circumstance of daily life because it is everywhere full and perfect. Consciousness is said to be the cause of all things because it is everywhere emergent as each manifest entity.” ~ Abhinavagupta


“Time and space are just projections of your consciousness.” ~ Sadhguru


“Unity consciousness is a state of enlightenment where we pierce the mask of illusion which creates separation and fragmentation. Behind the appearance of separation is one unified field of wholeness. Here the seer and the scenery are one.” ~ Deepak Chopra


“You do not have to raise your consciousness – you have to raise yourself to find access to it.” ~ Sadhguru


“In studying the history of the human mind one is impressed again and again by the fact that its growth keeps pace with a widening range of consciousness, and that each step forward is an extremely painful and laborious achievement. One could almost say that nothing is more hateful to man than to give up the smallest particle of unconsciousness. He has a profound fear of the unknown. Ask anybody who has ever tried to introduce new ideas!” ~ Carl Jung
